More hearings on Wisconsin redistricting are likely on the way after the U-S Supreme Court rejected the state’s legislative maps. Although congressional district boundaries were allowed to stand, the case was returned to the Wisconsin Supreme Court for a decision on legislative districts. U-W-Madison Law School professor Robert Yoblon says the state court has a few options left. Wednesday’s decision came on a seven-to-two vote. The Justices determined that Voting Rights Act requirements weren’t addressed when the governor’s maps created a new majority-black district in Milwaukee. Time is short if the Wisconsin court is going to make its decision ahead of the fall elections.
